Take a ride on the ‘Alihilani, a new 65’ Catamaran. Have space to relax and lounge on deck or under a covered cabin space. Enjoy a Mai Tai, and soak in the beautiful views of Maui. Have some hot and cold hors d’oeuvres during the sunset cruise. On the snorkel cruise, see over 250 variations of fish in some of Maui’s clearest waters. Have lunch and a refreshing beverage and try one of Hawaii’s local beers. This snorkeling experience in the Molokini Crater is one that will not be forgotten.
What should I bring?
A hat, sunglasses, towel, camera, and a reusable water bottle are at the top of the list. If you’re joining the sunset sail, especially during the winter months, you may want to bring a light jacket.
Will we see dolphins?
We sure hope so! Sail Maui guests frequently see dolphins, especially on the Lana’i trip, however, dolphins are wild animals and while they will do their best, they cannot guarantee that you will see them or any other wild marine life.
Can special diets be accommodated?
Yes, vegetarian or gluten-free options are available through their catering companies. However, people with severe nut allergies or celiac disease should be aware that they cannot guarantee there has been no cross-contamination.
Will the boat go to more than one snorkel site?
Sail Maui catamarans Paragon and Paragon II go to one snorkel site per trip, although you will also have the option to snorkel from Hulopo’e Beach on our Lana’i trip. Sail Maui specializes in performance sailing, so rather than motoring around to multiple spots, you'll hit their favorite and then go for an exhilarating sail.
Is sunscreen provided?
Yes, Sail Maui provides reef-safe sunscreen as a courtesy on both of their boats. They highly recommend using theirs or another marine-friendly sunscreen, as chemicals in conventional brands wash off your skin while snorkeling and can kill coral and promote bleaching.
